3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark amber, cloudy, rushes out from the bottle, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish and sourish aroma, fruitiness with light spiciness. Body is light to medium, malty and dryish flavor, some spiciness and light fruity sourness. Finish is average, malty and dry, some spiciness and sourness. Nice one - but bit thin body, not too much spiciness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2011 27/04/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2011-173)
Pretty clear deep orange to copper red beer, off-white aery head at pouring, turning to a smaller but creamy and stable head, adhesive. Aroma: bit metallic, sweet caramel, fruity, very malty, toast, citrus and yeast. MF: good carbon, medium body. Taste: citrussy, a little bready, tart apples and lemon. Pretty sour. Aftertaste: more lemon, bit of toasted malts, apple skin, bit cheesy. Weird and totally not what I was expecting from a winterbeer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Almost black body, small head. Sticky sweets in here. Wood, caramel. Medium sourness differentiates this from the average. Tasteful but not my favourite. (On tap at De Bonte Koe)
